Bangura breaks silence over Mjallby move

September 16, 2015 By Sahr Morris Jr.

Sierra Leone striker, Ibrahim ‘Teteh’ Bangura, has broken his silence on the reason why he chose to sign a short-term deal with Swedish Superettan side Mjallby AIF, instead of the Allsvenskan (the topflight) league side IFK Norrköping.

The 25-year-old, whose career was hampered last season by a knee injury, was invited by IFK Norrköping in July for a week’s trial with an option to revive his career. After the successful trial, the club announced they were pleased with the player’s performance but both parties could not agree on a deal, and no reasons were given.

The striker said: “It felt good and I scored ​​many goals during trainings; and after playing closed door matches against Jönköping Södra and Mjallby things were good for me.”

However, IFK Norrköping coach Janne Andersson was obvious when he had a dialogue with Bangura.

“Coach Janne Andersson was genuine. He was very honest and told me that he wanted me to sign a deal, but honesty was a reality,” said the Sierra Leone international. “IFK really has a good team and great striker. I know it had been difficult to play there as a fourth striker. Janne was honest and told me the situation from the beginning.”
